Are you sure the font file are exactly the same? It looks like the Severn 
version has some preliminary hinting for some letters.

If they are exactly the same, then it's freetype's fault. It may be trying to 
improvise some sort of hinting. The freetype people are developing ways 
around having a bytecode interpreter, which may or may not produce good 
results.
